Ups and Downs and All Arounds

Monday, March 05, 2012

Had an interesting weekend where I ate semi-compulsively or not always when I was hungry and sometimes until I was beyond full. What was important and different was that I did not let it get me down and I just moved on. It was so great to realize even when in the past I would have said, "that's it -- I have failed again -- will try again on Monday", it is okay. Perhaps this is because I am not dieting and trying to fit a certain guideline or rigid structure? In any case, this was my all around.

Even though this would have been a down day or weekend, it was not as I realized food has no power to spoil my efforts, life or journey to be healthier ... it is just food! This was my up.

And what was even better was the fact that I still lost a pound, so this loss was my down.

    It's a real step to move on from a setback without getting all down on oneself...there's something about shame and guilt that almost rewards bad behavior. One of those twisted aspects of psychology. So--good going!
